Support for Best Price Execution

Most brokers trade against your orders or sell them to others to execute who will trade against them. The resulting poor execution probably costs you more than the commission you pay.

Account Information

Advisors who manage client accounts in excess of state registration minimums (generally 16 or more accounts and US $25 million in assets) must be registered under local regulatory law (e.g. Registered Investment Advisors (RIA) for US securities and Commodity Trading Advisors (CTA) for US commodities).

The account can be white branded with the advisor's corporate identity.

Advisor master account holders must be 21 or older.

Professional Registered Investment Advisors can create multiple tier accounts by adding Advisor, Proprietary Trading Group STL and Multiple Hedge Fund master accounts to their account structure. Each Advisor, Proprietary Trading Group STL and Multiple Hedge Fund master account on the second tier can add client/sub/hedge fund accounts as required. Individual and Joint account holders under an Advisor account structure can add authorized traders to become STL accounts.

Accounts are accepted from citizens or residents of all countries except citizens or residents of those countries or regions that are on the sanction list of the US Office of Foreign Asset Controls or similar lists, or other countries determined to be higher risk.
